Not Another Mashed Potatoes Recipe - Does the internet really need another video recipe on how to make mashed potatoes? Probably not, there are tons of videos titled ultimate mashed potatoes, best ever mashed potatoes, creamiest mashed potatoes, perfect mashed potatoes... So why is Glen making this video?
Well because he was making mashed potatoes for dinner (to go with an amazing beef stew) and filming it just made sense.
